School Bond Measure on May Ballot
A measure that would provide local funding for Eugene public schools is on the May 21 election ballot.
The bond measure, Measure 20-210, would allow the Eugene School District to:
- Replace aging buildings that are worn and costly to maintain
- Provide better instructional facilities for students
- Support effective classroom instruction by acquiring updated technology and instructional materials
- Address student safety and security across the district
If the measure is approved, property tax rates for Eugene School District bond debt would increase by about 24¢ per $1,000 assessed value. Property taxes would increase by about $42 a year for the median homeowner in the district, with an assessed value of $174,000.
By law, bond money can only be spent on capital facilities (such as buildings, athletic fields and parking lots), equipment and technology. It cannot be used to pay for teachers, school days or school programs.
Ballots will be mailed to registered voters beginning May 3 and must be returned to the county elections office or an official ballot drop box by May 21, 8 p.m.

VISIT THE COASTAL MARKER
Installation of the Coastal Safety Marker at Smelt Sands State Park was completed January 5, 2013. The marker is located 100 meters from the place where SEHS seniors, Jack Harnsongkram and Connor Ausland, drowned on Feb. 5, 2011. The marker will heighten visitors' awareness of the dangers along the coast. The official dedication was March 9. The public can visit the marker anytime the park is open.The Committee is grateful for the generosity and support of the SEHS community and Oregon Parks and Recreation Department that made this project possible. Donations are still being accepted for an education campaign to be planned during 2013. For more details and photos go to www.sehscoastalmarker.org.
